Critiquing Critiquing StoryStory: Turns out you're doing it wrong.More Like This
Everyone is- and what's more, anyone who tries to make a foray into storytelling without having mastery over their efforts merits endless scorn.
I've had the privilege of sharing advice with some other creators of late, and seen some of the (usually anonymous) criticism being leveled at their work. It's noteworthy for being intense, superficially sophisticated, and misguided.
Now, there are two kinds of creators out there. Those who don't give a fig for what other people think, and dismiss all criticism out of hand.
...Those creators tend not to improve.
Then there are those who care about the quality of their work, take pains to make it enjoyable for others, and are receptive to feedback.
These individuals have the most potential as writers, and are also most vulnerable to their efforts being permanently deformed by vindictive critique.
They'll be assured their characters are flat cutout
Awkward Little MiracleSixty five million years ago, a 6.2 mile wide asteroid slammed into the earth and unleashed hell. The impact released 200 million times more energy than our mightiest atomic bombs, blasting superheated gas and debris in a corona of destruction that settled into a post-apocalyptic orbit around the planet.More Like This
The dinosaurs found it impossible to survive the event.
The alligators? Just dandy. Maybe a bit smug seeing all those cocky tyrannosaurs get theirs.
Contemplating this helps to explain our derpy little miracle:
Raging fire and collapsing infrastructure? Whatever. Stop Drop and Glare evidently works like a charm. That and being built like a little tank.
When we asked the rescuers if any pets had been rescued, they truthfully answered no. However, it wasn't until some weeks later that salvage teams began entering the building. One of them must have come across Tally, Queen of Destruction lounging in the midst of

I need to leave
I need to go away,
Drive the nails off my hands
I need to switch off the light
I need to disappear.
Moments passing by
Thinking all the time.
How I wish this brain
And all the thoughts could
have been someone Else's.
This dream, is not mine
I did not wish for this
I did not ask for this
Yet it was given.
Disappear is what I must do
become someone else.
Someone without guilt
blood running in these veins
Just a pebble in the
endless sea .
